NH Community Seafood-Community Supported Fishery (CSF)

Eat Fresher Fish.  Support Our Fishing Community.

Dear %%user-name%%,

Welcome to Week 9 of our Community Supported Fishery and thank you to all our 8-week Members who extended their Membership to enjoy a full Summer Session of fresh and local seafood!

We are all done with Shellfish as part of our share for the remainder of the session. Your shares will be fish from now until the end of this Session on August 12. 

We will have Additional Fish (Catch of the Week) for Members only available each week. Order Additional Fish here. Discounted prices for orders over 3 lbs!

All Additional Fish orders and Holds, done here, must be done by Monday at 9pm the week of your delivery in order for us to honor them. We tally all orders Monday night!

Our fish this week will be a medley of Flatfish, the Flounders! Our Dayboat Fishermen are catching mostly Monkfish and Flounder this time of year.  We will be serving up primarily the American Plaice, aka "Dabs"

When filleting a flounder, you actually can get fillets from both the top of the fish, which is the thicker part as well as the underside. Versatile and delicious!


 American Plaice 

The American Plaice or "Dabs" are a cold water species that range from southern Labrador to Rhode Island and in the eastern Atlantic from Greenland to northern Europe. Dabs live on the sandy/mud bottom and prefer deep water. Some can be found as deep as 700m (about 2100ft). They are reddish to gray-brown on top and have a blueish white underside. They have a distinctly pointy nose and rough scales. 

Plaice is a white, lean flaky fish with a mild flavor. This is a right eyed species. The flesh of this bottom dweller is lean and firm with a distinctly sweet taste often used as the standard when comparing the flavor of other flounder species. 

Our two Dayboat Captains this week are David Goethel, of the F/V Ellen Diane and Neil Pike of the F/V Sandi Lynn, Captained by Neil Pike. Both fish our of Yankee Fisherman's Coop in Seabrook.

Thanks to  the Captains and their hard working crews for the delicious Flounder this week fresh daily from our NH waters!


Cooking Flounder:

We like to remind all our members of the Cardinal rule for cooking any fish: Cook fish 10 minutes per inch of thickness. These fillets will be very thin, so just a few minutes each side will do! Here are some great flounder recipes from our Pinterest Page : https://www.pinterest.com/nhcsf/flounder/ and https://www.pinterest.com/nhcsf/plaice/
